island is a project based exhibitions program initiated by Christian Torp. Operating under the auspices of Galleri Christian Torp the program seeks nomadic exhibition spaces suitable for each project. Based in Oslo, island is dedicated to showing emerging talents as well as internationally established artists.

Located in temporary spaces island takes on a guerilla style heading for stirring up the dogmas and established rules. Through generating these 'islands' we hope to shift the attention from the stylized venues that are constantly competing about definition power, create a more fluid discussion, a more fluid language.
